Artwork description

The vibrant limited edition, Melting Pot, was one of a suite of prints made in the late 1990s. It was created at a time when Mick Moon was strongly influenced by India and Indian objects, such as this Islamic pot. Abstract forms, textural details and a strong palette evoke the heat and wondrous assault on the senses for which India is known and loved. In recent years, Moon’s visual language has developed dramatically. In his latest unique works he employs a monochrome palette and depicts objects amongst a heavily textured background, thereby creating a sense of viewing the subject through a haze.
